    Hi Guys,
    I need to install a wavemaker or something similar in my TL450 as I have some dead spots where detritus seems to accumulate. Do you have any suggestions which system to use as the low volume of the TL450 makes it a bit problematic installing the ones normally mentioned. If you have a setup and can post some pics, that would be great.
    Thanks

    A power head will probably do the job.
    Have a look at the following, they provide around 3000litres of flow per hour.
    Seio prop 1000 about R450
    Hydor koralia's KE2800 abbout R500
    Tunze nano stream 6025 about R750.
    Seio also has a smaller prop 530 at about R300. for 2000LPH

    Get yourself a Resun Wave Maker 2000...I have the BOYU TL 450 and had to remove my SEIO Pump when I added LPS Coral as it was just WICKET...!!! These are smaller and find that the price is good....I paid R120 for mine...last year...

    Thanks for the advice. Any pics of your wavemaker location in the tank?

    I have a SunSun JVP101 (3000l/h) which provides a flow which seems to Hectic!!
    I have most of my rockscape towards the back. Perhaps I need to rescape and try alternative locations for the pump!?

    I have a hammer coral, goniopora, leathers, zoos and fox coral and do not want these ripped apart with the aggressive flow.
